Enjoy the imaginative and creative designs by Verde Valley's budding advertising designers.
The Verde Independent and Camp Verde Bugle are proud to sponsor the Valentine's Day Children's Design-An-Ad Contest in cooperation with our advertisers.
Third through fifth grade students from Accelerated Learning Center, Beaver Creek Elementary, Camp Verde Elementary, Verde Valley Montessori, Clarkdale-Jerome Elementary, Cottonwood Elementary, Oak Creek Elementary, Mt. View Preparatory, Verde Valley Christian School and St. Joseph's Catholic School participated. Our staff selected the top designs in the three grade categories and one grand prize winner overall.
After the students created the ads, our 37 participating advertisers each selected the ad they desired to represent their business. These ads appeared in the pages of a special printe section.
The Verde Independent and Camp Verde Bugle thank all the advertisers who made this valuable language, business and graphic arts lesson possible for the Verde Valley youth.
